Inventure Academy are Champions at M.I.X.!

  Inventure Academy bagged the overall championship, while Parikrma and Oakridge were first and second runners-up at the fifth edition of its inter school event, Multiple Intelligences Xplored (M.I.X.). Exclusively designed to distinguish inherent proclivities and talents in children, the event was held for Grades 1 to 5 on Friday 9 February 2018 at the Inventure campus. This event offers a unique platform for students to showcase their adaptability, application skills and resilience when faced with a challenge on the spot, and is designed across eight categories: Word smart, number/reasoning smart, music smart, body smart, picture smart, people smart, self smart and nature smart. The activities were designed to test students’ ability to come up with creative solutions to wider world issues and scientific problems, to express a given theme through the medium of art, dance, music and puppetry, to construct working and viable models out of recycled material, and above all – to be able to work cohesively with other members across age groups. Participating schools included Bethany High, Delhi Public School (East), Oakridge International School, Parikrma Centre for Learning, Primus Public School and The Brigade School. The results of the event are as follows:

Meet Sahithi Pingali – Nurtured at Inventure, Re...

 

1) What are you currently doing?

I’m in 12th grade and working on completing my A Levels at Inventure Academy

2) Which colleges did you receive acceptances from? Which did you choose and why?

I haven’t even sent out applications yet, so no idea. I’m planning to send early applications to the University of Michigan and Stanford.

3) How has Inventure helped you achieve your goals thus far?

Inventure has been like a second home to me since the age of 8, so arguably every achievement I’ve ever made has been strongly influenced by Inventure. I think most notably, Inventure has provided me with an incredible amount of flexibility. Whether I needed extra afterschool access to the chemistry lab or wanted to take board exams early, Inventure has always accommodated me. As a result, I was able to undertake advanced studies and research according to my interests without any restrictions. My close relationship with teachers here has also helped me balance academics with everything else I do.

4) Why would you recommend Inventure to a friend/anyone you know?

I think the culture of the school is really great. Teachers, students, and the management all come together to create a place where collaboration, equality, and multi-dimensional learning are realized. To put it very simply – since I’ve joined Inventure, I look forward not to the beginning of summer holidays, but to their end. It’s a real gift to be able to look forward to school with excitement and anticipation every morning – and that’s why Inventure is awesome.

5) What were your major accomplishments at school?

1. Grand Award winner at the IRIS National Science Fair in Pune. At a separate event, the Indian National Science and Engineering Fair held at Rajkot - Gujarat, Sahithi competed against the top 20 Gold medallists of the country and emerged as one amongst the top 3 winners to represent India at ISWEEEP. 2. ISWEEEP (The International Sustainable World Engineering Energy Environment Project) Olympiad held in Houston, Texas, Sahithi won the Gold Medal for her research on 'An Innovative Crowdsourcing Approach to Monitoring Freshwater Bodies'. 3. At the INTEL ISEF international finals held in Los Angeles, she won 3 special awards in addition to placing overall second in the category Earth and Environmental Sciences. The ASU Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives Special Award A Special Award from King Abdul Aziz and his Companions for Giftedness and Creativity US Agency for International Development Special Award 4. Sahithi was first exposed to the impact of development on Bangalore’s lifeline - our network of lakes - in July 2015, when she won a scholarship from Inventure to participate in the American India Foundation on (AIF) program, to study the impact of urban development on scarce resources. Sahithi was also part of the Inventure team that participated in the Our Lakes Our Voice (OLOV) (an Inventure Change Maker initiative) aimed at students from AIF and Inventure doing an experiential case study on Varthur Lake, a 450-acre water body in Inventure’s vicinity. The team’s findings through OLOV prompted Sahithi (the Change Maker OLOV student coordinator) and her team to research the various factors that contribute to the pollution of our water bodies through surveys, sessions with experts, and interviewing people who live and work around the lakes, while carrying out regular testing on ten different Bangalore lakes, for over a year. Sahithi went on to develop an integrated mobile phone app and lake monitoring kit which is being used to visualize changing lake conditions by crowdsourcing lake monitoring to citizens and students (our future citizens!). All the collected data feeds into a first-of-its-kind live web-based water health map of the world which automatically indicates the status of each monitored water body.

6) How have you built/used what you learnt at Inventure… how has the Inventure experience helped you in college/life?

Inventure culture has been a really big part of everything I do. The way everyone is actively encouraged to pursue excellence in multiple dimensions has influenced my motivation and attitude towards life. Having such a big community of people who are so willing to celebrate every achievement and support me after every failure has pushed me to reach ever higher. Top Schools in Bangalore

Meet Paul Francis – Nurtured at Inventure, Ready...

 

What are you currently doing?

Currently, I live in Oxford, England. I moved here so that I could compete in motorsport against some of the best drivers in the world and improve my skills and techniques. I’m also homeschooling, self-tutored, so that I can be flexible with my A levels and do them at my own pace. I plan to do maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.

Which colleges do you plan to apply to and why?

I’d like to get into Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Imperial or the LSE. I haven’t decided yet on my course but maths, physics and computers really interest me. These universities are among the best in the world so they have a certain allure. Also I’d really like to live in a city independently, so the London universities appeal to me in that sense as well.

How has Inventure helped you achieve your goals thus far?

There are so many individual instances that I’d like to bring up but it would take too long to write! Inventure has supported me massively; the teachers were always ready to help me catch up or answer any questions if I missed work due to races or wanted to go ahead. They were paramount in me achieving the grades that I did, always going the extra mile so that I could improve. The sports department has also been one of the key factors, providing a welcome break from studying and ensuring that I kept fit and strong. The students created a friendly and supportive environment. Inventure makes sure you develop academically, but also improve personally. I have learnt many “life lessons” during my time there as well as skills such as time management, independence and how to have a thorough understanding of one’s subjects. I’ve always thought of myself as being part of the Inventure family and am proud to have gone there.

Why would you recommend Inventure to a friend/anyone you know?

There’s so much to say but to name a few reasons - Inventure provides a very well rounded experience, the faculty are friendly and welcoming and the infrastructure of the school is world class. You can have a very enjoyable yet productive experience at school.

Why would you recommend Inventure to a friend/anyone you know?

I’d say my top achievement would be the 8 A*’s and 1A I got at IGCSE doing them a year early. I usually did well in the standardised exams (ASSET/Olympiads) getting above 98thpercentile. I’ve represented the school in football, athletics and chess as well as my house (NURTURERS FTW!) and have won a few medals.

How have you built/used what you learnt at Inventure… how has the Inventure experience helped you in college/life?

I took part in many activities – for example the RaspberryPi. It’s a device that can perform cool tasks once programmed and has encouraged me to learn more about coding. I’ve learnt so much during my time at Inventure, have grown tremendously (both figuratively and literally) and am more equipped to take on the world.

Meet Keya Vishwanathan, Tufts University – Nurtu...

 

What are you currently doing?

I am currently studying Biology at Tufts University.

Which colleges did you receive acceptances from? Which did you choose and why?

I received acceptances from Tufts University, Emory University, UCLA, Wesleyan University, UC San Diego, Scripps College and College of Wooster. I chose Tufts University because of the strength of its Biology program, the location, the type of student body. According to me, it is very inclusive to internationals and just generally has a diverse, intelligent and interesting student body. The location is also prime because although it is super close to a major city (Boston), it still has its own campus.

How has Inventure helped you achieve your goals thus far?

I think Inventure supported me both academically and in terms of extra curriculars. Inventure provided me with the subjects that I wanted to take and with teachers that were engaging and knowledgeable. Inventure also gave me opportunities to play football, do MUN, take part in debates, etc.

Why would you recommend Inventure to a friend/anyone you know?

What I really liked about Inventure was the shared focus between academics and co-curriculars. I would recommend it to everyone that wants a well rounded education.

What were your major accomplishments at school?

My grades. I played football and did athletics until 11th grade. I did some MUN and some debate as well.

How have you built/used what you learnt at Inventure… how has the Inventure experience helped you in college/life?

Inventure definitely taught me to be genuinely interested in what I am doing. I had great professors, especially Biology ones, in school and that's one of the reasons I became so interested in the field and continue to be. The Inventure experience was a well rounded experience and that's what I find is important to have had before coming to college. When you get here it's easy to go into extremes and forget to balance between academics, extracurriculars and a social life, but having had to do it throughout school really made it easier for me to stay on track. Top Internatioal Schools in Bangalore

Meet Pranav Kumar, Carnegie Mellon University –...

  What are your plans going forward? Which colleges have you received acceptances from? Simply put, I am a computer geek. My primary field of interest is Computer Science, but to be specific, I am mainly interested in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. My goal as of now is to become a researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence. So far, I have been accepted to the following colleges:
  • Georgia Tech
  • University of Michigan Ann Arbor
  • Imperial College London
  • University College London
  • King's College London
  • University of Edinburgh
  • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
How has Inventure helped you Achieve your Goals thus Far? Inventure has provided me with a nurturing and supportive environment, enabling me to pursue my interest in computers and helping me throughout the college application process. I got a chance to start a Technology Club at school, through which I was able to teach my juniors some interesting topics in coding. I also received hands-on experience with entrepreneurship through the ChangeMaker sessions at school. My college application process went smoothly, and everything was taken care of from the school's end. Why would you recommend Inventure to a friend/anyone you know? I would recommend Inventure because it doesn't solely focus on academics or studies. It doesn't just prepare you for exams and the academic rigor of college; Inventure also allows you to explore all your interests, however varied they may be. It lets you pursue your passions while simultaneously preparing you academically. Inventure doesn't just prepare you for college; it prepares you for life. (Also, the pasta for lunch on Thursdays is delicious!) What were/are your major accomplishments at school?
  • My major accomplishments at school so far have been:
  • Topping India in Computer Science, and achieving world rank 5
  • 3rd place at HP CodeWars 2016, a coding competition
  • 2nd place at Synchronize 2015, another coding competition
  • Starting a Technology club at school
  • Heading the project Chain Reaction
